Your diet can directly impact anxiety & panic

We all know exercise is a great coping mechanism for anxiety and panic attacks. But what's often overlooked is the importance of our diet too. Increasing food intake loaded with Vitamin B's, Niacin, and Biotin can help our bodies produce more stress busting serotonins. I made a page listing commons foods with these vitamins and minerals here .
Also, you should reduce your intake of the 3 primary stressors:
-sugar
-alcohol
-caffeine.
You don't have to quit taking these. (I love coffee!) Just try to cut back a bit and your anxiety levels will drop.
